and yet the teaching of this science rarely goes beyond redox reactions and the Nernst Equation in General Chemistry.
En condiciones optimizadas, el dispositivo presenta un rango dinamico lineal para concentraciones de iones citrato que varian desde 0,034 hasta 1,7 mM con una pendiente de Nernst de 57,2 mV.
Furthermore, the combination of the thermoelectric effect termed the "Anomalous Nernst Effect,"(4) appearing due to the ferromagnetic properties added to the cobalt alloys and the spin Seebeck effect, have improved the thermoelectric conversion efficiency by more than 10 times.
In 1916, Nernst proposed that the universe might actually contain ubiquitous zeropoint field without any presence of external electromagnetic sources [12, 13].
Mitochondrial membrane potential (MMP) in millivolts was calculated based on the Nernst equation [14] as follows:

Fluoride ion-selective electrodes respond to the fluoride concentration in a non-linear relationship following the Nernst Equation [18].
This variation of the voltage with variation in concentration may follow the Nernst equation.
Concentrations of reduced and oxidized forms of a paired redox couple can be used to estimate the redox state (in millivolts) with the Nernst equation (Jones et al.
The basis of which is the use of Nernst equation to describe the concentration of redox species in terms of the potential at the cell's electrode under equilibrium condition.
